This was the smart electric drive on a hot August day. Outside temp about 110 degrees, car reading 127 because of the hot asphalt (I took this while in stop-and-go traffic on the highway). I had the Air Conditioning on, and the car was doing just fine. You'll notice the performance bars are not at 100% - this is likely because the battery cooling system was working hard to keep the car running well. I have not had the same battery depletion issues as the Nissan Leaf - and I think a lot of that has to do with the active/liquid cooling system on the battery.
